Sandie Rinaldo speaks to the son and grandson of George Dixon, who served with pride in the “Black Battalion”, the largest Black military unit in Canadian history. These soldiers of the segregated Number 2 Construction Battalion were subjected to hate and racism, deprived of services, care and respect, for which the government apologized in 2022. How much has changed since 1916? There are still few blacks in the Canadian Armed Forces today, and those who are serving still experience racism and discrimination. That war is not over.
